A Winter's Gate

When looking to spruce up a garden gate, I need look no further than the woods. The ingredients can be as simple as evergreen cuttings, decorative kale, cabbages, and crabapple and pear clippings. I also gave a nod to Hopewell Valley's farmland by adding a corn tassel. And don't forget that pansies are a mountain flower able to withstand a freeze to five degrees. That comes in handy if you want a flower in the mix. My gate is now a welcoming entrance to all visitors- friends and family coming for the holidays and my beloved wintering birds.
